4. Occupational Hazard
Exposure to asbestos was one of the most common reasons people developed cancer due to their occupation. As part of their research, scientists determined that almost 4% of all cancer cases in the UK were due to occupational exposure. You defiantly need to consider the impact of what you do on your health. Sometimes, avoiding work where you are exposed to environmental toxins can extend your life.
5. Environmental Pollution
There are many other ways to contract cancer—radiation, alcohol, infection, lack of physical activity, hormone imbalance—but the fifth most common type of cancer people can prevent is that which is derived from too much exposure to harmful sunlight. Cancer from exposure to the sun occurs almost as frequently as cancer due to asbestos exposure. Protect yourself when you are outside!
